Support Joy-Southfield CDC Clinic!
The Joy-Southfield clinic is in need of funding for their pharmacy to provide medications to those that can't otherwise afford it.
This project is by Rhiannon Lewis & Samantha Scannell

Due to budget cuts, the pharmacy at Joy-Southfield is unable to provide their usual amount of medications to patients. In an effort to compensate for the budget cut, we have decided to do a fundraiser for the clinic.
The clinic provides aid to those of the community in the far west of Detroit.
The service goals of the Health & Education center include (as stated on their website):
Improve the health status of the Joy-Southfield community through expanded access to primary and preventative care.
Provide a patient home for underinsured residents of the community, such that timely management of chronic illnesses reduces dependence on emergency departments.
Build a permanent facility that is dedicated to and designed for the provision of health care services.
Provide regular life style management education programs designed to assist community residents in preventing, minimizing and controlling the occurrence of preventable acute health incidences.
Become recognized as a provider of quality primary and preventative health care for the poor and underinsured segments of the Joy-Southfield community.
Attract federal and local grants to help sustain the operation of the clinic and make it a long-term source of health care for residents in this community.
